No idea what they are singing about (apart from fish) but those last few pics in the vid- well I can certainly see the similarities with Scots! Very Happy

Yes, Orwell dear. I used to live in a drum kit. Nod Two rooms and a kitchen. *ba dum tsssh! (Punch line drum)* *




* This might be almost funny if you guys too refer to the drums and percussion in a band as the kitchen department.

Thank you very much to the few people who donated recently! Due to some very generous members we now have enough money in the bank, so to speak, to extend our domain name and lack of ads to June 2013. There's only a little bit left over but since we won't have to worry about renewing for over a year that's not a big deal. Of course, if anyone wants to contribute now that would be very much appreciated (it'll just go into the account until we need to "make a withdrawal"), but it's not urgent. I'll post another update about finances next year when it comes up again. Razz

Once again, thank you to everyone who helps pay for the site and to everyone who posts here and helps keep the site alive! You're the best. cheers

I can't access the Old Archive, Eldo.... Shocked Is it GONE? Sad Banghead Extremely Crabbit I thought at some stage I might go and collect up all Wisey's old channellings - I am fond of them --- but they're GONE! Shocked

Lucky for you then Orwell that Pretty in conjunction with Pure Publications published them here- I am sure such will be Wisey's relief at their safety that he will overlook the lack of any payment or copyright enfringments on the part of Pure Publications.

I think this was done before there was a Creative Corner- you might want to move the thread to there Eldo when you get a moment.

I moved the thread for you, Petty, although you can do that too, you know. Wink

As for the archive, I had been waiting to see if Taz would be able to bring it back online, but seeing as he seems more interested in selling the other site outright, I'm not holding my breath. I can still probably find somewhere else to host the archive if people are interested, but that's contingent on the earlier offer I received still being open (it probably is but I'd need to check).

There is a subtle, but notable difference Eldo between having the power to do a thing and knowing what the hell you are doing. I only have the former.

I think making and raising kids probably falls under this category, which explains a whole hell of a lot.
My favorite quote of all time comes from a child psychologist, I don't know who, unfortunately:

"Despite their parent's best efforts, kids usually come out okay."

or Philip Larkins poem
They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
And add some extra, just for you.

But they were fucked up in their turn
By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
And half at one another’s throats.

Man hands on misery to man.
It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
And don’t have any kids yourself.

Didn't know about Larkin - his rhyme pattern sounds like Dr. Seuss.

If you don't mind, that would be great. I don't want to seem pushy, especially since I don't think I've ever talked to Taz except about Forumshire/Archive matters. (Plus, you're the Ambassador. Razz)

You should probably not have said that out loud Mrrs Figgs where Orwell might here it. I suspect it may turn out the Banks Family Business include a chocolate shop, and you know how close he is to the Bankses. {{{Unless of course that is your cuning plan Mrs Figg to lure him back from his imminentish date with Kafria}}}}

Thanks, Ally! Very Happy Taz sent me the SQL database a while back (and a couple other people should have backup copies just in case anything happens to my hard drive) so we're good to go on that front. If we need a hosting solution I'll keep your offer in mind. Wink
